LargoRecipes drives Icelandic recipe page

A LargoRecipes user in Iceland has used LargoRecipes version 0.9.2 - about to be released - to publish a web page containing her favourite recipes in the Icelandic language. LargoRecipes correctly renders the special Icelandic characters and makes it easy to create and update the recipes on the page.

LargoRecipes 0.9.0.3 released

LargoRecipes is a Java/Swing application for managing recipes, meal plans, and shopping lists. Version 0.9.0.3 is a minor bug fix for the last major release, version 0.9, fixing a bug that made you click the save button twice in some circumstances (bug 645147).

LargoRecipes has a particularly simple patching mechanism - no installer needed! Just drop the tiny (12K) patch file into the patches directory of an 0.9.0.1 installation and start LargoRecipes.

LargoRecipes 0.9.0.2 (stable) released

LargoRecipes is a Java/Swing application for managing recipes, meal plans, and shopping lists. Version 0.9.0.2 is the first stable release of LargoRecipes 0.9, which includes a new import format (MealMaster), better ingredient handling, and faster data storage.

LargoRecipes does sophisticated ingredient parsing, handles RecipeML and MealMaster file formats, and generates recipe web pages. Read more about LargoRecipes and the new release on the home page:

LargoRecipes 0.9.0.1 beta out now

Small bug fixes. Nice new patching feature (so I can release very small patch files, instead of having to release the whole 2.5 meg package). File version indicated in jar filename.

The latter fix provides a fix for the problem I inadvertently introduced in 0.9 (see last news posting): sourceforge doesn't let you have multiple files with the same name, so I couldn't have a largorecipes.jar for 0.8 and another one for 0.9 (seems obvious in hindsight, but I didn't get it at first). New files will have full 4-digit version numbers to guarantee distinctness; if you really must have version 0.8, let me know and I'll find a way to post it.

LargoRecipes 0.9 beta out now

LargoRecipes 0.9 with MealMaster support, improved parsing, and better data management is now ready for download and beta testing.

Releasing 0.9 seems to have messed up the 0.8 files. I'll investigate and fix - in the meantime, if you need 0.8, send me an email.

Download files now available!

You can now download LargoRecipes version 0.8 from sourceforge! Enjoy.

Why are there no files here?

I'm still figuring out how CVS works. Give me a week or so - say until 7 September - then complain if there still aren't any files. In the meantime, download the source .jar file from the project home page:
http://largorecipes.sourceforge.net

LargoRecipes on SourceForge!

I've just moved LargoRecipes to SourceForge. Since I am still figuring out how CVS works, there aren't any source files here yet. However, the web page for version 0.8 is here in its entirety. Enjoy!
